Does anyone know what music these hebrew prayers came from?

I was praying the other day, and I realized that 9 prayers have very catchy melodies, and sound like drinking songs, especially when sung at a moderately fast pace. One instance of a drinking song melody comes from Oseh Shalom Bimromav. We sing this at the Seder, and after Birkat HaMazon. My grandparents refused to let anyone sing it in the original version because they said the melody is a German drinking song.

So I’m hoping someone can point me in the right direction on where to find the songs, or tell me what the original songs were for: Adir Hu, Had Gadya, Echad Mi Yodeah, The melody for the blessing of candles (L’Hadlik Ner Shel Shabbat, Yom Tov, Shehechianu, etc.), Ma Otzur, Oseh Shalom Bimromav, both of the melodies I know for Adon Olam, Yigdal Elohim Chai, V’Zot Hatorah, etc. TIA
