Sorry for the late reply, but:

I'm not really sure.
Maybe "Dondang Sayang" since it has a little less Indian influence and thus sounds more novel to me. The Indian influence in "Sri Muar" also appeals to me, though.
By the way, I am from Johore, the state where Muar is located. And Dondang Sayang originated on Johore's neighbour state, Malacca.
Oh, that's cool! Terima kasih!
Both of these are songs that are supposedly in Malay but are both from Sumatra rather than from Malaysia. This is a song called "Selayang Pandang" by Veri Afi (or Ferry Afi, as his name is spelled in this video). I think maybe "Melayu Deli" means it's in the Malay of the Sultanate of Deli

The other one I think is supposed to be a song of the Karo ethnic group but IIUC is in Malay and not Karo. It's called "Bercerai Kasih" and performed by Layla and Sayful (or Syaiful as spelled in the video). The lyrics are in the subtitles:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F63AvU7-d7A
