Electronic and disco genius Giorgio Moroder recently spoke to Red Bull Music Academy and revealed something that could have changed the course of human history: There was almost a Bob Dylan/Sylvester Stallone collaboration. No, really.

Moroder, who's the man behind the beats of such iconic tracks as "I Feel Love" and "Love to Love You Baby" (and worked with Daft Punk on their upcoming album, Random Access Memories), was asked if there was anyone he wished he was able to work with over the course of his career. His answer:

I do remember that Sylvester Stallone, when he was making the third Rambo film, absolutely wanted a song with Bob Dylan... So I scored the song and Sylvester liked it. I presented it to Bob, and he was listening to it. I think he heard it seven or eight times, but he eventually said no. I don’t know why -- maybe it wasn’t the right movie or song... We never used it for anything else. It was done specifically for that scene and movie. He’s one of those artists that you think, well… if he doesn’t like it, it’s probably a bad song anyway.

Sorry or you're welcome, we just forever changed your life. Quick, someone start a petition -- it's the public's right to get our hands on that song!
