Dont think what you hear is that hard to explain.

A melody containing the 5 first notes in C major is always going to be lower in pitch than the same melody played in F major. Its a huge difference in timbre for many different reasons.

Also the lower the pitch the longer between notes in the actual air. A at 220 is a waaay longer sound wave than a 440. The distance between 440 and 880 on the other hand is not at all that drastic. Etc etc. This makes an impact on how it feels, especially when singing. A jump between the 5th and the 1 in one key can feel totally different than in another.

We all use equal temperament tuning now. No point in further complicate things. Its complicated enough.
