What tipped off the credit card company for fraud?

Just got a call from my bank, Chase, for credit card fraud. Got it all taken care of, card canceled, new one on the way...no worries. I'm just wondering, what tipped them off?

They asked me about 2 charges, one for one song off of iTunes, (probably the thief testing the card they said) and one for about $150 worth of tools. I didn't get a chance to ask what about these made them suspicious enough to contact me. Why did those raise flags and not the time I spent $1000 on new appliances? Was the mp3 a country song, and they just know that much about me to know that I don't do country???
