This is not my favorite Dark Star. And Dark Star is not one of my favorites. But, hey! History!
There is a myth/story/ urban legend that the song was named after a real astronomical discovery: A Real Dark Star, LGM-1. * According to the myth, astronomers discovered this the year before and everyone thought it was aliens trying to communicate with us. And some versions of the story claimed that the aliens successfully communicated with Garcia and that is how this song came about.

Mashups with Lana Del Rey v. Marina and the Diamonds, Tove Lo, or Lorde. Some of them are pretty good, especially if you like all of these albums (I do like and have owned all of these albums except for Tove Lo).
After all this time, still sends shivers through my body:
