The opening was a haunting suggestion of what was to come.,

This review is from: The General's Daughter: Music From The Motion Picture (Audio CD)
I saw "The General's Daughter" at a midnight showing and my companion and I said after two minutes we had to have the music - regardless of whether the movie was good or not. Luckily it was good. I ordered the music (from Amazon of course) when I got home at 5 am. The opening song "She Began To Lie" with its primitive sound and childlike quality was somehow errotic at the same time, and the military-sounding percussion in the background suggested what was to come in the story. The play on words of sea lion/she lying was musically and psychologically ingenious. The rest of the soundtrack is wonderful, too, militaristic, suspenseful, and powerful, but the opening music is what made me want the CD. Not only have I listened to it many times but have talked about it with my friends who have heard it. Great soundtrack.
