Mariah Carey acknowledges she encounters aspiration in the most unusual places as her hit song 'Hero' was composed in the john. The hotshot singer was utilizing the toilet on a time out from taping as the thought for the track hit her. She arisesat wee times at night to compose songs - since she concocts melodies in her head while asleep. Carey states : "Occasionally I awaken in the nighttime and experience a musical theme and need to arise and enter it immediately before I draw a blank ."Or with Hero, I was in the studio and somebody was talking to me more or less about this motion picture 'Hero' with Dustin Hoffman in it. I took a stroll to the toilet and when I returned I experienced this theme that I could use as a song, and that's why it became 'Hero'."
