If you can imagine a David Bowie and Coldplay collaboration, know that such a thing actually came somewhat close to fruition.

Frontman Chris Martin revealed at last night’s BBC Music Awards that he once wrote a song with the intent of having Bowie sing vocals on it, NME reports.

But his request ended up denied by the iconic singer himself.
