The Spanish verb gustar is used to express that you like something in Spanish. However, the verb itself means to please and the Spanish sentence therefore differs from the English in terms of structure.
gustar = to please
Example: The sentence I like the music would in Spanish be me gusta la música - corresponding to the music pleases me.
