Not about you, but weird how some feel the need to have some sort of race topic integrated (see what I did there?) into the discussion. I think it's because it becomes a shorthand.

It's possible to wonder "what would Joplin have done with this?" Someone with more aggression in their delivery - but maybe it's really not possible since I'm imagining that his should be sung in a perfectly kept mid-century styled apartment.
 Janis wasn't too white.

I knew you did but clarity is good.  It can be easy to misconstrue stuff in written forums - as we've all seen. 
True though, Hal David did often write some goofy - or just painful- lyrics; like this tune, nice melody, chords, and arrangement, but badly dated (and sexist) lyrics:

Yeah - I didn't mean to bring that in as some "hot-button" point of contention or something, but you knew that.  It's just something I'd heard said about them over the years.  But that practice does become a sort of shorthand far too often though.

The lyricism of Hal David here always blows me away, (“I end each day the way I start out / crying my heart out” WTF!!!) but McCoo’s (and the other 4 Dimensions’) soulless delivery frustrates the heck out of me. Appropriate for the times, but in my head I wish for something much more gut wrenching. I understand it’s supposed to be false bravado, but when she gets to the point of “I don’t know how / in the world / to stop thinking of him...” it’s still just a bit too cool for me.
