Then why did you use the phrase "on time" to define the phrase "in time"? Frankly I would have said just the opposite: "in time" means you might be early and have time to buy popcorn, whereas "on time" means you got there with just a couple of minutes left to find your seat. What is your native language? From what perspective do you make this observation of neutrality? Neutral in what way, and compared to what? Many people who speak Italian, Spanish and other languages with lots of cardinal vowels, long words and lyrical inflections think English, with its abrupt monosyllables, guttural consonant clusters and flat intonation sounds butt-ugly. That is true of songs in any language. You obliterate the tonal structure of the words and sentences to conform to the melody, you make words longer and shorter to match the meter, you change the stress to fit the cadence. It's unusual for people to sing in their "native accent" in any language. Country & Western music with its clearly identifiable Southern American dialect pronunciation is a striking exception and that may be one reason it's so popular. So where are you from? All we know about you is your screen name, and you chose one that makes you appear to be a native anglophone.
