How is this song in AABA form?
Can you tell me how this song: Countie Basie- Moten Swing song is in AABA form?
Could you give me the seconds when it's A and when it's B?

It's as simple as saying the As are one form and the Bs are another (not a repeat of the same combination of chords or notes, they have to be changed in some manner).
For instance, let's say the majority of songs are composed as:
Verse, chorus, verse, chorus, verse, chorus. The verse is the A and the chorus is the B.
For your example it's played 2 verses, a chorus, then a final verse.
Some songs will start with a chorus. They could be BABAAB formed. It's really up to the composer.
Genesis has a song from the 80s called ABACAB. That would be a verse, chorus, verse, a bridge, a verse and end with a chorus.
